Syrian state television confirmed the reports Thursday and said the us -led attack took place east of the Euphrates river in Deir al-Zor province in eastern Syria, causing casualties. Up to 30 artillery and tank rounds came within 500 yards of an SDF headquarters.
The Air and artillery strikes from American and coalition forces happened in the eastern part of Syria in the middle of the Euphrates Valley which has for a long time been a non-official boundary for the two warring factions.
US F-22 stealth jets, F-15 fighters, and MQ-9 drones were involved in the counterattack according to US Air Forces Central Command.
Supported by tanks and artillery, 500 troops loyal to Assad attacked an SDF compound in Kusham.
Following the incident, the Russian command at the air base of Hmeymim established channels of interaction with representatives of the worldwide coalition headquarters, which stated that the local oil refinery was controlled by the SDF and USA military personnel, the statement said.
More than 100 fighters from the pro-regime side were killed in an unprecedented and large clash the included tanks, artillery and rockets. "PRF [pro-regime forces] were likely seeking to seize oil fields in Khusham that had been a major source of revenue for Daesh from 2014 to 2017".

A coalition statement emphasized its mission to combat Islamic State, while asserting "its non-negotiable right to act in self-defense".
Russian Federation is the regime's main ally on the ground in Syria and in the worldwide arena, frequently using its permanent seat on the Security Council to provide Damascus with diplomatic cover within the global community.
According to Igor Girkin, an ex-commander of Russia-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine, two tactical units of the Wagner private military group had been hit by the USA strikes on February 7.
Russian Federation said the air strikes only wounded 25 fighters, but claimed the measure points to U.S. designs for the resource rich area.
The rare strikes against pro-regime forces were confirmed by the US-led coalition Operation Inherent Resolve, which is in the region targeting Islamic State. Tehran-backed militias have bolstered the Syrian army in the east. In June 2017, a Navy F/A-18E Super Hornet shot down a Syrian SU-22 that had attacked Syrian Democratic Forces.
